Decided to have a go at using inchies as per the challenge at CAS Mix up. In the end I made two cards and had fun creating them.


For the frames I used a small die from a Concord & 9th kit purchased this year. I really like the turquoise blue on the bright Jelly Bean green card stock so I laid them out and glued them. I stamped the greeting in black beside the frames and when dry added a bit of sakura glitter from a pen to the word Merry. using up a scrap piece of white sparkly cardstock I die cut the poinsettia flowers from a Creative Expressions set. I added the centers and then a small piece of gold star/flower left over from the bits that came out of a previous die cut. To make the leaves I added a strip of sparkly washi tape to scrap cs and die cut them. Sparkle doesn’t really show here unfortunately.

    1. Yes I like the two colours together too. I didn’t actually plan the colours – it happened by accident because I had both card stocks on my desk pushed together and my brain went wow.


    1. In general don’t use much washi tape but I got these rolls in a sale and they work well for certain things. They actually stick well which some rolls don’t.


  1. What a beautiful Christmas card! Love the delicate inchie frames and the sparkly poinsettia flowers! The color combo is fantastic and the placement of the sentiment is perfect. Thank you so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up! Hideko xx

  2. Love your design with the overlapping inchie frames on the diagonal. So pretty with the die-cut poinsettias in each one. Beautiful non-traditional colours for your lovely Christmas card. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. Thanks so much. These days I am into things that are less traditional as I am trying to change my brain into thinking outside the box.
